Coming Out

At 3am I woke to a sound -
scratch, scratch, scratch,
at my wardrobe door.

I opened it
and out stepped a black cat.

I put many things in my wardrobe:
shirts, trousers, jackets,
the occasional dress, shoes -
but never a cat.
How can a cat come out of my wardrobe?

The same way disdain
and disappointment
can come from a marriage
when all you put in were hope
and love.
